About the property


Vines Cross Farm is located on the edge of the rural hamlet of Vines Cross, which is in the heart of the East Sussex countryside and lies within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The market town of Heathfield is 2.5 miles away.

Our two holiday Lodges enjoy a peaceful setting and provide tastefully furnished, luxury accommodation with wood burning stove, super-king double beds (or twins if you prefer), en suite shower rooms with walk in shower, 32” HDTV with freeview, free WiFi and outside a private decked area with views of the meadow and surrounding countryside. We carry out our own cleaning and maintenance and pride ourselves on our very high standards.

Vines Cross Farm is an ideal base for a peaceful, rural holiday with footpaths from the door, including a great Geocaching route, the Cuckoo Trail (old railway line) just a mile away for cycling or walking and many National Trust properties locally.

If, on the other hand, you like a spot of serious shopping then you are only 18 miles from the spa town of Tunbridge Wells.

The beaches at Eastbourne or Pevensey Bay are 15 miles away and London can be reached from Stonegate Station (8 miles). There really is something for everyone!

About Yvonne Miles

We moved to Vines Cross Farm, a former plant nursery, in 2012. Since then we have set about developing it into a smallholding with chickens, sheep and pigs. We have also just been joined by a small herd six alpacas including two babies.

Yvonne Miles purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Yvonne Miles chose Heathfield

We wanted to live in a rural location and start keeping livestock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the moment I booked, I received great communication from Yvonne & Anthony. when we arrived, they were both there to greet us. The accommodation was simply perfect, immaculately clean, great layout with a bedroom with en suite on either side of the living room.

All the little touches were much appreciated, fresh eggs and milk in the fridge, flowers on the table, absolutely everything had been thought of that you may need during your stay.

I could not recommend this highly enough, for a great relaxing, home from home get away.

A great place for a relaxing break, Bramble Lodge exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The layout at Bramble Lodge is ideal for 2 couples sharing, with a bedroom at each end and living space in between. Everywhere was spotless, beautifully finished and the attention to detail could not be faulted.

Nice view over the paddocks and the alpacas were fascinating to just sit and watch. Yvonne and Anthony made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed getting close to the alpacas and helping to feed the lambs.

All in all, just perfect. Would we go back? Definitely!

They thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Interior much bigger in real life than it appeared on the website. Kitchen was fully equipped, welcome package of milk, teabags etc was very thoughtful. Even included coffee and farm eggs. We loved the alpaca and binoculars to see them and the birds close up, also owls hooting at night! Very comfortable beds, elegant bathrooms. Jenga!

We were in England for a family funeral. Bramble Cottage was perfect for quiet and reflection for us and our family. I hope we can come again. Thank you

We thought the property was excellent

  • 5 of 5

The property was well thought out everything inside the property was first class .The fixtures and fittings complemented the inside of the cabin.

So making it a comfortable and pleasant place to stay.

You cannot fault this holiday place we felt so happy and comfortable there

We hope we can return again Yvonne and Antony greeted us told us where everything was and if we needed anything they where on hand.

We enjoyed going up to see the alpacas ,pigs and sheep I think if our dog was allowed in with the pigs they would have worn themselves out running around they where good fun.

We had a fab time and was quite reluctant to have to go home.

Many thanks Yvonne and Antony.
